I just checked our fuel filter
and found water
for the first time since we've owned the boat. My first thought was that the deck
fill was leaking, but I just came up with another theory that I wanted to run by you guys:
We've been motoring more than usual lately, and for the first time maybe ever (since owning the boat), we've been motoring in rough(er) seas. I thought maybe the water's been in the gas tank the whole time and has just been sucked into the filter due to the added turbulence in the tank while the engine's on? Does that sound possible?
If not, what are other ways water
might have gotten in there outside of a leaky deck
fill or just bad gas?
Thanks for the help.
